Over the years, the fire service has evolved from being simply a suppression agency to that of being an educational outlet in the community, one that responds to specialized and tactical rescue, hazardous material incidents and emergency medical response.
Published By Josh Gish Upson County Board of Commissioners addressed a series of concerns raised by the public in regards to an updated version of a proposed RV ordinance set to take effect in Upson County in the near future.
The public hearing was held Aug. Under public hearing format, various representatives from recreational vehicle facilities across Upson County were given five minute time slots to voice their personal grievances and recommendations for the ordinance proposal moving forward.
The report offered an explanation that the current policy since on RVs in Upson County is very simple.
Unoccupied travel trailers, motor homes, and coaches are permitted as accessory structures only. One may not legally take up residence inside of an RV parked on a private parcel of land. However, the policy in place for campgrounds reads differently as there are 20 special exceptions listed for the AR zoning district, one of which creates a special exception for recreational facilities.
Several Upson County business entities are looking to take advantage of this exception in order to avoid certain enforcement measures that will be enacted by the proposed ordinance. A prime example is that of the campground facilities located at Hope of the Generations Church.
Visitors have reportedly taken advantage of the campgrounds at this facility for more than 70 years, outdating the first planning and zoning projects in Upson by decades. The primary issue described by county officials was the problem of individuals residing in RVs parked not in RV parks, but on parcels of land with manufactured homes.
The updated ordinance more strongly states RVs are not suitable for permanent residential living, but should be used for short-term vacations, like interim travel, temporary emergency shelter, and special circumstances.
The planning commission also addressed instances such as short-term guest housing, and accommodation of documented workers such as contractors or traveling nurses at the hospital.
Currently, it is illegal for an individual to accommodate an out-of-state RV on Upson County property for any amount of time. Under the terms of the updated ordinance, temporary parking in the front yard while a relative or friend visits would be deemed legal as long as the visitor is the documented owner of the RV.
With regard to documented workers living in RVs, the planning commission enacted a month provision to allow workers to reside in RVs during their time in Upson County.
A 12 month extension would also be made available if one obtained a permit granting the additional 12 months of residency. Citizens concerned that the updated ordinance will impose a barrier on their current living situation claimed the most efficient way of life is through residing in their RV.
These individuals are enjoying a cost of living far less than those associated with generic households, and feel as though the ordinance oversteps its bounds in its authority to control their private property rights.
